It has been far too long since I have introduced Annie – Baaad Anna’s newest staff member. I’m sure you have all met her already, but in case you haven’t here is Annie – she join our team in January this year, and we are so happy she is here!
Annie has knitting on every side of her family, so she learned to knit when she was about five. It didn’t really take until she was 18 but she hasn’t been able to stop! She loves talking to crafty people about their projects and ideas. She mostly knits little things, but if she can get her hands on a good cozy sweater (or even a blanket!) she is the happiest person alive! She loooves being wrapped up in wool!
Annie knit these fantastic fingerless gloves in Sweet Georgia Worsted. We just restocked the shop in all the amazing colour of Sweet Georgia Yarns - so stop by and check it all out!

I am so excited that the brilliant designers behind Tin Can Knits have just re-released their fantastic pattern Gramps Cardigan. I knit this sweater last year for Bohdan, you can read about it here, it is by far one of my most favourite patterns, and a real joy to knit!
My sister has been begging me to knit one for her son, and now that they have released the larger sizes (all the way to adult 4XL) I’m ready to start the next version? So who is with me? We can follow each other’s progress on Instagram, FB and Ravelry…use the hashtag #grampskal
We have some fantastic new yarn for fall that this sweater would be lovely in! I think I will be using the new Imperial Yarn Columbia, or maybe the new Diamond Luxury Merino Superwash Heathers!

If you are looking for something fun and fibre-full to do with your little ones this summer, check out our new Hungry Caterpillar felting kits. The kit includes all the fibre you need to make two hungry caterpillar’s and the instructions to do it!
Wet felting only requires water and soap, so it’s perfect for those who want to work with fibre, but can’t quite use needles yet! The kits are $8!
